    Haven't you heard of They!? They're out to get you! They give a shyt about you so much that they read your emails, texts; heck they even watch your Skype video calls. They have nothing better to do than spy on you! They watch you ALL the time- they even know what you did last summer!!

    People are crazy scared of their shadow... Paranoia is a bitch when they're so narcissistic that they actually think someone gives a shyt that their texting Susie Rotencrotch...

    The encroachments into our privacy and rights continue. I'm continually being saddened by moves like this by my government. I know though that I shouldn't be surprised given the amount of information I've digested over the years, but still... I do not like where we're heading as a nation with our policies around privacy and Constitutional rights. It matters not, either, what side of the aisle it comes from because both have done truly unAmerican things to us and will probably only continue to do so. Too bad we can't have a TV or movie President - one that doesn't negotiate with terrorists, strip us of Constitutional rights, invade our privacy by spying on us, or so many other things that are hampering the American experience today.

    New technologies will require precedent and new rulings on privacy. Though I certainly hope that the supreme court finds the contents of a phone which you own and is in your possession to be private it is within the powers of his position to ask for a definitive ruling on the matter and to challenge the idea those things are private. It is just the way we come up with decisions on these things. It is not obama's job to interpret the laws of privacy and it is completely appropriate for him to seek a ruling from the highest court on those issues. The only danger I find is that the court itself has become partisan and unreliable in these areas and may make a ruling that follows party lines rather than the ideals which inspired the protections against illegal searches. I cannot blame obama for the hackery of the supreme court in regards to political standing over constitutional interpretation.

    Yeah, this sounds like something of a nonissue that the media's trying to inflame. The WH isn't asking for the power to search cell phones in general without a warrant. It's asking for clarification of court cases which, for some reason excluded cell phone searches after somebody was arrested. Generally, if you arrest somebody on probable cause, you don't need a warrant to go through the possessions on his person. Cell phones are a little different since you have to activate them. But in the context of an arrest for a crime that's taking place, I think I might want the police to get into his cell phone to see if he had an accomplice he's warned, etc.

    But it is a difficult case on the facts. It isn't about listening into cell phones, helter skelter, as the title suggests.

    Its never too late to stand up for what is right. We can beat it at the ballot box. elect new blood that will do what is needed to be done to get it done. No compromises, No backroom dealings.

    Three election cycles and it can be accomplished. We can do it by the next Presidents 1st midterm election.

    Yeah, elect freedom loving Republican like Bush and Palin, who demogogued opposition to the Patriot Act as "soft on terrorism"

    The word government doesnt scare anyone, THIS government should scare the sh!t out of you. And if it doesnt, you deserve what you get.

    And they are all "theys"...they dont represent me, only my Congressman represents me and I dont believe he is doing a well enough job at it...there are 500+ other elected people and thousands of non elected people that do not represent me in this government. They do not represent you they only represent themselves and what can line their pockets. More millionaires are born in congress every year through "contributions" from special interests...banks, unions, oil...the list goes on and on of those that "they" represent before you or I.

    it's a good thing Obama came along when he did... why if Bush was still in office, we would have the Patriot act, the NSA spying on us, and the federal gov3rnment completely ignoring any privacy rights we might think we have.


    Silence, Obama voter... you've no leg to stand on.

    Who opposed the Patriot Act and its renewal-- Republicans or Democrats?

    I'm for the NSA collecting metadata, so you're whining to the wrong guy. It's the best way to detect all the terrorists Bush created through his stupid policies of invasion and torture.

    As to the federal government "completely ignoring privacy rights", you're hyperventilating, as Obamaphobes always do.

    I hate to have to break the bad news to you, but technology ended privacy long ago. Data never dies.

    who opposed it?... the correct answer would be " not enough of anyone"... as it still exists... Obama has shown no problem with renewing it whatsoever.

    yes, i'm sure i am whining to wrong guy... I should be whining to folks who do not support the NSA and their collecting our data... my bad.... carry on, freedom warrior.


    i'm sorry about " hyperventilating".. but have no fear, you are not going to lose your title as the biggest hyperventilater on the internet.
